WV AG Joins Coalitions to Protect State’s Rights to Regulate Abortion

January 20th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has joined two multistate coalitions aimed at protecting women’s health by urging the U.S. Supreme Court to protect the rights of individual states to regulate abortion within their borders.
One brief urges the Supreme Court to review a case involving a state’s exclusive right to license abortion providers within its borders.  The other brief seeks to protect state laws that require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
“Every state must be allowed to enact common sense regulations to ensure the safety of its citizens,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “The 10th Amendment affirms this right belongs to each individual state.”
The licensure brief, in defense of an Indiana state law, argues that a federal court cannot require a state to issue a license to a specific provider. It contends that if federal courts can override state licensing decisions, the states would be unable to maintain consistent standards and guarantee the safety of citizens.
The privileges brief supports Louisiana’s effort to require that all ambulatory surgical centers, including abortion clinics, hold admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Such a measure helps ensure that abortion procedures are performed under the safest conditions possible.

      > The suit is to try and limit abortions – not insure ‘women’s health.’ It is all about conservative Christian men trying to outlaw abortion in the name of ‘state’s rights.’ It is silly suits like this that mobilize voters to vote pro-choice. They always fail to think things through.
